12oz bottle thanks to jrob_21. Pours a dark brown with a thin tan head which dissipated quickly. Smell is of malt and roastiness. Taste was of malt and vinegar. A bit cola-like. Mouthfeel was medium-to-thin with a bit of dryness.

wilkie (1208) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - MAY 11, 2008
Draught, from a CASK at the WBF in Raleigh. Pours dark brown, with tan head. Aroma is malty, sweet, roasty. Flavor is similar, nice beer, but nothing extraordinary about it. A little thin in flavor, but otherwise, okay.

Dark brown with an amber hue. Some chocolate and roast aroma, but nothing overwhelming. Good bittering hops, although I wouldn’t mind seeing more aroma hops used.

Naka (719) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 28, 2008
On tap at Sportstime in W-S. Pours a dark brownish red color with a small light tan head leaving some lacing. Aroma is a dark brown sugar malty nose. It has a little bitterness, but the flavor brings a strong metallic flavor at the beginning. Once you get past that, there is some roasted coffee malt flavor with a touch of nuttiness. Very watery. Not terrible, but probably won’t search this out again.

jrob21 (3395) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAR 5, 2008
Wife brought this back from Greensboro. I love my wife. Pours a deep brown with purple tint color with a really thin off white head. Roasted malt flavor and hop bitterness. Candi sugar and caramel aroma. Leaves a faint sweetness on the backside. Long finish and full bodied. Very interesting brown ale.

NachlamSie (3230) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 28, 2008
Bottle. Pours brown with a small head. Aroma is very nutty, hints of toast and baking chocolate are noted. This is a pretty straight up brown ale. Nice and nutty, not overly sweet, It’s toasty all around and the finish is doughy. There is a strange, almost vegetal aspect towards the finish. This may have been my least favorite out of the Natty Greene’s bottled lineup.

biznizness (1128) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - FEB 11, 2008
Among this brewery’s uninteresting bottled beers with goofy names, this one is actually the best. Totally good brown ale worth the buy.

radagast83 (7089) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - DEC 19, 2007
Bottle thanks to badnloose. Pours a medium brown color with a small dissipating head. Aroma is that of a typical brown ale with a small note of dark chocolate. Flavor is about the same, creamy, with coffee and bitter chocolate.
